    Mercer

    Currently working in the Career Rewards practice at Mercer and looking to expand into more human capital consulting outside of comp consulting and total rewards. I'll likely be looking to apply in ~6 months! Which consulting companies would you all recommend looking at for the most well-rounded / growth-focused Human Capital practices? I want to stay in consulting for a while, so sustainable career growth is important to me.
